Martin Bromirski photoblogs the opening reception for an exhibition of paintings by George Hofmann at Show Room, New York, on view through October 7, 2012.

Of Hofmann's new work Paul Corio recently wrote: "The removal of the paint is perhaps more important than the application in this group. The barely-there smears of high-key colors give the pictures a lightness - both in the sense of weight and illumination - and transforms the plywood ground into a hazy yellowish atmosphere, even as the hardness and physicality of the wood tries to reassert itself."
